STOP LAND GRAB UPDATE: Platinum Record Selling Spirit of the West's Linda McRae and Southern Oregon's Circle of Stone Benefit Concert August 2nd!
We're proud to announce singer/song writer Linda McRae will perform a benefit concert for Stop Land Grab in just three weeks! Music fans, listen-up. We're limiting ticket sales to only 120 tickets. It's no exaggeration to say this is an incredibly rare opportunity. No one will be more than a few yards from the stage and the setting couldn't be more magical: the beautiful, tree-shaded McKee Bridge Park, next to one of the nicest sections of
the majestic Applegate River.
Linda McRae needs little introduction. But for those unfamiliar with her music, her latest album can be heard at her website, LindaMcRae.com.
Stop Land Grab considers Circle of Stone a hidden gem of the Southern Oregon music scene. Their rich talent runs deep and beyond simple genre classification. Their influences include classic rock, Celtic music, bluegrass, folk, and Cajun rhythms. They were a big hit when they played for us in 2011 and we're confident they'll put on a memorable show. Check out their Facebook page by clicking here.
We will offer dinner service for a modest fee. Tickets for the show and advance dinner orders can be purchased by visiting the StopLandGrab.org website. Dinner service starts at 5:30pm, and Circle of Stone will open at about 6pm. Concert tickets are $25, and children 12 and under are welcome at no charge so long as they are accompanied by an adult. Please visit our website for more information about how to order tickets and to review dinner service options. Don't delay. We expect to sell-out quickly given the rare intimacy of the venue.
This is a "family friendly" event. No alcohol will be served. But Preston and the wonderful staff at the McKee Bridge Restaurant run a full bar a few hundred feet from our venue. We're pleased our event will also benefit one of the Applegate Valley's best restaurants. Consider coming early for lunch at the McKee Bridge Restaurant and then head on over to our "silent auction," which is free and open to the public and starts at 2pm. We'll have great merchandise and gift certificates from local businesses. Kids will love it. One of the Applegate's best swimming holes is part of the park; there are horse shoe backstops and you're welcome to bring games to entertain kids during the free daytime activities.
At 3pm, Stop Land Grab will also hold a round table update on the issue of the Siskiyou Crest National Monument proposal, along with many of the other current public lands policy debates.

Merchants & Local Residents: Help with Silent Auction Donations Appreciated!
If you'd like to gain exposure for your local business or just happen to have merchandise suitable for donation, please contact us. We'd appreciate donations and we'll do our best to promote your generosity.
Please Spread the Word!
Telephone your friends and tell them to do the same, in turn. We're a grassroots organization dedicated to our local community and we'd be nothing without the energy and help you have all shared. We're humbled and
grateful for the support and in the weeks and months ahead, we're dedicated to expanding our reach and impact. Public perception of the monument proposal views it as a back burner issue for the time being. But nothing could be further from the truth, particularly when set in the context of other proposals for the region.
If you use Facebook, spread the word about the event. We have a modest Facebook page with the event announcement published, making it easy for you to share our page with your Facebook friends. Click here to pull-up our Facebook page.
